Guinea Bissau President, Umaro Embalo is the new Chairman of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government for the next one year. He was elected at Sunday’s Accra Summit to succeed Ghana’s Nana Akufo-Addo, who held the position for almost two years.

Embalo who was recently re-elected survived a deadly coup attempt early this year, reportedly sponsored by drug barons in his country with strong international ties.

Meanwhile, Gambia’s Omar Alieu Touray was also introduced as the new President of the ECOWAS Commission replacing Cote D’Ivoire’s Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, who has served a four-year mandate with an extension of three months and 10 days ending on July 10.

Brou will now assume office as Governor of the Central Bank of West African States, BCEAO on Monday.

Touray will head the seven-member Commission of a sub-region dogged by insecurity and political instability with three of the 15 member-states under military rule.
